What is the real story behing US 5G ?

America’s 5G band is part of US the military weapons and communication system. It seems that this will enable the US regime to control the “civilian” 5G system, access non-military communications data, and provide the ability to turn off 5G nation-wide at any time. In August 2020 the US government announced it would redeploy spectrum currently used by the military towards commercialised 5G networks.The US regime’s Department of Defense said it would ensure commercial use of this critically-needed mid-band spectrum “does not compromise military preparedness or national security.” The US military currently uses the mid-band spectrum for radar operations that … Continue reading What is the real story behing US 5G ?

Nicaragua along the Belt and Road

This excellent article, republished from China’s Global Times locates the recent inauguration of Daniel Ortega for a further term as President of Nicaragua, and the increasingly close ties between China and the Central American nation, within the overall context of a resurgence of the left throughout Latin America. This is occurring in the teeth of intense US pressure and hostility and, the article notes, the Latin American left is characterised by a strong opposition to hegemony. The growth of the left in Latin America  therefore  aligns with global trends and will lead to stronger ties with China as well as Russia. Friends … Continue reading Nicaragua along the Belt and Road

Fact check: China and U.S. roles on issue of climate change

Two years on from COP25 in Madrid: West still shafting developing nations in Glasgow on climate change

Re-reading the editorial we wrote 2 years ago in December 2019, when China Environment News had just begun, reminds us that the contradictions we pointed to then have only intensified. The previous UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid in December 2019 was sabotaged by the rich Western nations, led by the US, when they refused to significantly progress their 2009 COP15 promise for a $100 billion per year global fund to help developing nations tackle climate change. So it was no surprise that discussions on finance at the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow got off to a difficult start … Continue reading Two years on from COP25 in Madrid: West still shafting developing nations in Glasgow on climate change

Allegations about China and carbon pollution are rooted in racism

It’s wrong to paint the Chinese as the world’s biggest environmental villains, but mainstream media outlets do it all the time. When I was young, there was a joke going round which went something like this: “Americans eat way more candy than British people!” “Really?” “Yes! Because there are more of them!” This piece of playground humor works by presenting an apparently clear fact, and then revealing the context that shows it up as misleading. In truth, British people ate far more candy per person than Americans. That may be just a feeble junior school joke for most people, but … Continue reading Allegations about China and carbon pollution are rooted in racism

The US moral superiority complex is accelerating its decline

At first glance, the following article does not relate much to the global environmental crisis and China’s efforts to combat this internationally. However, in reality it provides a significant part of the context in which the West seeks to undermine China’s leadership of the Global South. It is well worth reading. “No matter how hard the power-knowledge regimes of Western intellectual production work to conceal the decline, the West no longer dominates the world and the values it advocates are not unanimous, far from it.“ “At the beginning of October, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken unveiled a new partnership … Continue reading The US moral superiority complex is accelerating its decline

UNESCO and China: Building the eco-civilization that leaves no one behind

“Etiquette and culture are learned after people’s granary becomes full. Honor and shame are distinguished when the folks have enough to eat and wear.” The words from the ancient Chinese statesman and philosopher, Guan Zhong, living in the Spring and Autumn Period about 2,700 years ago, demonstrate the Chinese philosophical wisdom in discerning the linkage between material abundance and social progress. Since China resumed its rightful place in the United Nations 50 years ago, its economic success has left the world in awe. As the most populous country, China has become the second-largest economy within half a century and accomplished … Continue reading UNESCO and China: Building the eco-civilization that leaves no one behind

Tibet in Western media vs the real Tibet on the ground

#ChinaChat Miao Xiaojuan, host of the China Chat program on New China TV, talks with two American experts who visited Tibet – Shaun Rein (of China Market Research Group) and David Blair (of Centre for China and Globalization). Together the two visitors share their firsthand experiences on the trip, delve deeper into Western views of the region, and aim to separate fact from fiction. What they have to say is refreshingly honest and free from the sort of ideologically motivated bias so prevalent in much the Western, and particularly US media oligarchies. The interviewees analyze the basis of this bias … Continue reading Tibet in Western media vs the real Tibet on the ground

The so-called left’s collaboration with the Western imperialism

Republished from the Hood Communist (https://hoodcommunist.org/principles-of-unity/) “As the Western left has become more aligned with their imperialist bourgeoisie in the destabilization of the Global South, the radical Black tradition provides a clear approach to “turn imperialist wars into wars against imperialism.” Changes in historical conditions can elevate a secondary contradiction to a primary, and antagonistic contradiction, in an instant. The rightist collaboration with the Pan-European colonial/capitalist project on the part of the social-imperialist left in the United States and Europe did not occur instantly but has been evolving for decades. The contradictory nature of that relationship has sharpened as a … Continue reading The so-called left’s collaboration with the Western imperialism

THE CENTRALITY OF CHINA: THEN AND NOW

By Thomas Hon Wing Polin “The best single expression of China’s vision for the 21st century is its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the most ambitious development project ever. It is a contemporary version of the original Silk Roads (one land, one maritime), which helped the ancient world flourish for more than a millennium.“ “BRI’s success would help bring about the “Community of Shared Human Destiny,” Xi Jinping’s oft-cited vision of the future. When all is said and done, that may be the most sensible way ahead for humanity — if it is not only to survive, but thrive.” ****************************************************** … Continue reading THE CENTRALITY OF CHINA: THEN AND NOW

Critique of 21st century imperialism and the growth of ecological Marxism: a view from China

Defence or Defenestration

By Anthony M Leong Dumping Australia’s French submarine contract, then awarding it to the USA and Great Britain, whilst establishing a new “AUKUS” alliance, has many consequences, mostly problematic. It is axiomatic that any government has a moral obligation to defend its citizens and borders. Citizens must be safe and secure without question. Related to this is by what methods that is met, for it is not just physical, but also economic and environmental security. There are also responsibilities and obligations, where activities carried out in the name of defence should not be seen as a provocation, threat, or belligerence … Continue reading Defence or Defenestration

No Great Wall: on the continuities of the Chinese Revolution

It is impossible to understand China’s efforts to create an “ecological civilization” without understanding the context of its economic and cultural modernization . To understand China today it is essential to understand the struggle by the Communist Party of China to rapidly modernize that country – just as it is not possible to genuinely understand China’s efforts to create an “ecological civilization” without understanding the context of the economic modernization. In this article Carlos Martinez argues that, while the Chinese Revolution has taken numerous twists and turns, and while the CPC leadership has adopted different strategies at different times, there … Continue reading No Great Wall: on the continuities of the Chinese Revolution

About China Environment …

Global environmental crisis is the product of centuries of Western exploitation of the land, natural resources and labour of the Global South.  Seriously tackling the global ecological crisis must involve a global redistribution of power and wealth from the West to the Global South. We unequivocally acknowledge that in China this has required the building of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Similarly, in other countries there is no doubt that successfully tackling environmental crisis will require the implementation of forms of socialist state power appropriate to that country. Socialism with Chinese characteristics & ecological civilization Global ecological crisis is the product of centuries … Continue reading About China Environment …

White Man’s Media: vilification of China and ‘colonisation of the mind’

Most political colonies have come to an end. But a colonial mind set continues in the Australian media. That colonial media mind set in turn promotes a ‘colonisation of the mind’. By John Menadue, the publisher of Pearls & Irritations. The US Department of Defence maintains, in its own words ‘full spectrum dominance’ throughout the world.  Legacy media in the US and the UK has the same dominance .
